FWD Gold Medals

 

 

The 2017 Gold Medal awards will be presented on November 30 at Old Billingsgate, London. We're still taking table bookings

 

Every year we are astonished by the quality of entries for our Gold Medal awards. This year has been no exception, and our judging panel has had to make some tough decisions on the way to whittling the entries down to the top three in each category.

We'd like to thank everyone who entered and all those who helped them with their applications. The judges were bombarded with evidence of talent, commitment and a determination to succeed and exceed. The wholesale sector is lucky to have these exceptional people among its ranks, and must commit to nurturing, challenging and rewarding them as they develop their careers.
